St. Petersburg, FL (December 13, 2019) – On the morning of December 12th, three people were injured in a car accident that took place on FL-686 in Clearwater.
The crash took place around 10:58 a.m. at the intersection with 28th Street. At the time, a 39-year-old man was driving a Chevy Cruze when he ran a red light at the intersection, striking a Jeep Wrangler driven by a 65-year-old woman.
The Jeep rotated and eventually overturned onto the driver’s side, where it came to a rest. The Chevy also rotated and struck a Toyota Corolla that a 37-year-old man was driving.
The three drivers were seriously injured in the accident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
